Creating a Local Systems Map
• Brings together key stakeholders to tap into local expertise
• Creates a local map using the Sequential Intercept Model
– Visually depicts local system
– Identifies:
o
Existing local services and processes
– Gaps in services
– Strengths to build upon --- opportunities and resources
– Data
o
Issues considered important to local stakeholders
• Helps everyone see the “big picture” and how they fit
– Helps diverse groups from various systems understand where/how
everything fits
– Intercepts provide manageable venues and opportunities for systems
interventions

Problems
• Transport Issues
• Multiple Jurisdictions
• No Public Defenders
• Lack of mobile response
• Most services off the reservation
• Poor data systems
Problems
• No detox on reservation
– At least an hour away
– Not all individuals eligible for county payments
• No 72 hour hold facility on reservation
– Could be 8 hours before placed
– Could go to detention
• Inconsistent MH screening in jails
• Inconsistent screening for NA in non tribal jails
Issues in Indian Country
• 911 services are not coordinated to meet the
needs in ‘reservation’ proper.
• There are more than two contact phone numbers
to know to access assistance – one for law
enforcement, one for ambulance and one for
seeking assistance in a crisis.
• Availability of resources to address or answer the
call for help.
Best Practices
• Cross deputization
• CIT Training – Mental Health Unit (Ute and
Shoshone)
• Shared Court Jurisdictions
• Shared Probation Supervision
